The Chick One-Lok CNC vice system is the latest evolution of workholding technology to be added to 1st Machine Tool Accessories' (1st MTA's) portfolio of high productivity machining equipment. With a maximum grip of u
With a maximum grip of up to 17in (432mm), One-Lok incorporates Chick's new 'Boltfast' interchangeable jaw system, which enables soft or hard jaws to be replaced with a single turn of a locking screw, to provide locational repeatability of 0.0008in (0.02mm).
Machining accuracy is enhanced by the unit's novel 'squeeze' clamping configuration, which applies an equal and opposite internal force to the fixed jaw as the moving jaw closes, providing virtually deflectionfree component clamping with a maximum retaining force of 10,000lbf. A 'QwikSlide' mechanism allows the moveable jaw to be easily unlocked and slid forwards or backwards to achieve rapid set-ups.
